Shadow



   

Starting from my feet  

my shadow stretches beyond the sun  

with hands like mine  and legs. Wherever I go  

it walks with me.    


Though the ball of the head is mine  

This shadow has no face  nor color  nor scent.    


I am the shadow, yet… I am not.


                            -Bhisma Upreti
